Rockfax Description
The parallel thin cracks just left of the slab's most prominent crack, climbed by Pharos, is yet another enjoyable pitch. Start at a smooth slab below the cracks.
Climb up the smooth lower slab to the cracks and follow these all of the way to a double bolt lower-off. © Rockfax

No Pro at the start and a bit limitted thereafter. Good bolts at the top. We left a rope in place from the ab off previous climb. 5a may be overstating it but very sustained and testing. HVS for lack of pro I presume

poor protection on start, but once at about 5m lots of place for pro. a really nice slab climb

I'm sure there was a good cam low down that's gone now, makes the start a bit bolder.

Slab climbing, low in its grade but lots of fun.
